4 Hours after the end of the Bears game, I had to wake up to catch a morning flight for a business trip. Little did I know that I would have no internet and thus no way to revel in the glory of that game here on PP.O.
Vikings 34, Bears 14. That game was awesome. We played great, just amazing. Everyone was playing up to their potentital. Peterson, Taylor, Gus, Berrian, Cook, Allen, Griffin, it was just awesome. That's the main thing I took away from that game. We had a chance to take sole place of the division lead, and executed perfectly. I couldn't ask for more. I'm sure some here had some complaints during the past week, and that's why it angers me that I could not be around to slap those complaints down with words of reason.
So what do I get instead? I get to come back here a post after this Lions game. Instead of reveling on PP.O during a happy week, I watch a game where Peterson looked as bad as he has all year, Gus sucks, Griff gets burned, and TJ comes in and plays well.
It's going to be a long week. Time to get to work. Time to make ya'll realize that Peterson's fumbling is a minor concern, and that the guy still broke 100 yards in a "bad" game. Time to discuss how Gus still should if healthy, even though his play isn't convincing anyone of that. Time to question why Griff was left on an island with Calvin Johnson with no safety help.
I'm back baby.
